Escaping the judgment to come
June 9, 2011
Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.
There was a little girl who loved going to church on Sunday and learning new Bible stories. As her family was on the way home after church one day, her mom looked at her and said, “So what did you learn in Sunday school today?”
She told her mom, “I learned that Enoch was walking with God one day and they walked and walked. But it was getting late, so God turned to Enoch and said, ‘Enoch, we’re closer to my house than we are your house. Why don’t you just come on home with me?’”
Well, I don’t know exactly how it happened. But in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, Enoch who had been walking with God so faithfully for all of those years was suddenly and supernaturally in the presence of the Lord.
This story is a small picture of what will happen to the Church at the end of the age before the great judgment comes. It’s called the rapture, when Christ shall come in a moment and in a twinkling of an eye, and we’ll be caught up immediately into his presence (1 Thessalonians 4:17).
That supernatural event is the next event scheduled on God’s prophetic calendar. One day—maybe today—BOOM! We’ll be gone as God spares us from his wrath because we are in Christ. So remember that, though we’re to have a holy reverence for God, he’ll always save believers from his wrath because of our position in Christ!
REMEMBER THAT GOD NEVER JUDGES THOSE WHO WALK WITH HIM, BUT WILL SAVE YOU FROM HIS WRATH TO COME.
